For many writers, the contour and direction of a lifetime's work exists in a shadow-land. The relationship between one book and the next, and the lasting significance of an author's oeuvre remain partly obscure until the culture in which it was produced becomes 'history'. Even then, writers are rarely the best and most willing interpreters of their own work.

  • A generous, insightful, enthusiastic and deeply respectful review of one fine historian's work by another equally fine scholar. What a pleasure to read.
